Psychic Teens Put a Schizophrenic ‘Hex’ On You
Psychic Teens are a band out of Philadelphia that deliver extremely strange and drugged-out post-punk. Today, the band is premiering their new EP, Hex, a sonic base jump into trippy waters of distortion. The eponymous opener shows this quite well, swelling into a tidal wave of drowned-out vocals and gloomy guitars. From there, they shape their wave of noise in interesting ways, "OUT2C" starting as an almost saccharine tune that gets a little nuts, "Emily" an understated and genuinely pretty track. It shows that these guys are experts at their craft, able to weave heavy strings of distortion into interesting patterns and sounds. Pre-order it before its official April 21 release via Hex Records.
